A seven-month-old neutered female Toy Poodle was presented with lameness on the right front leg after a minor injury. Radiographs revealed a complete simple distal diaphyseal transverse fracture of the right radius and ulna. Internal fixation of the fracture was performed by placing a 1.5 mm veterinary cuttable plate (VCP) 1.0 mm thick. Two weeks later the patient re-fractured the radius at the same site after a self-injury and a second operation was performed by placing a 2 mm VCP 1.5 mm thick.
Prevalence, diagnostics and surgical technique are discussed in this report. A comparison between surgical alternatives and their post-operative complications is also made.
